The Wren and Cuff Small Foot Box Of War is a big muff type effect pedal, based on the highly sought after Sovtek Civil War Russian Big Muff π. Appearing in the early 90s, this big muff is distinguished by a modified circuit delivering less gain, a darker drive, a huge low end and a clear and detached mid that passes through the mix.

Used by David Gilmour, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and The Black Keys, it's a muff of character that has found its audience.

In this redesigned version, the Californian brand adopts a classic size chassis while retaining the essence of the original circuit. Top components, quality PCB, indestructible box, everything is there. In terms of controls, there are the classic Volume, Tone and Distortion. A 9V input and voila!

The Box Of War is therefore a derivative of the first big muff type Ram's Head and others. So what's the difference? Well first of all, the circuit was manufactured at the time in Russia, for a question of cost. The components were for the most part very standard and the “parts” of a relatively… deplorable quality! This meant that these pedals did not survive very long which made them rare and coveted. But, these weaknesses are in fact what made it so successful. Indeed, the sound of the "Civil War" is largely linked to its circuit, far from the "hi-fi" standard of the genre. Compared to a classic muff, this one sounds much darker, with a thicker low midrange and a more fuzzy high end. Also, it has less gain than its predecessors while retaining a very characteristic woody side. The drive is fluid, the high medium soft, fluid and less aggressive than its counterpart the Tall Font.

Have the Small Foot Box Of War, Wren and Cuff confirms its reputation as a specialist in vintage BigMuff reissues. This modernized version, manufactured in a very beautiful way and sold at a more than reasonable price. It's a great choice for anyone looking for an indestructible version from the Sovtek era. The brand has succeeded in perfectly replicating vintage pedals while adding rock-solid reliability and extended versatility, which the original was sorely lacking. For Sonic Youth fans and others!
